The library system in my area actually has had to open up their very own used record store (within their used book store) in a local mall to handle all the stock coming through. They used to to sell all the records right at the libraries, but they've cut that back now. It can be a little tough to shop at this place, since there's a ton of records, many of which have been around a long time without selling (and for good reason), with not much organization or knowledgeable sorting-out and catagorizing going on, but by the same token, if you're willing to slog through a lot of the same dead wood repeatedly, you can still find good recent arrivals over the course of a patient afternoon. It's not my most productive spot, but it's pretty impressive nonetheless, not to mention cheap.
